Statewide & Clinton Primary Results

McMahon, Murphy, Formica and Crawford declare victory.

 

Statewide results:

As expected, Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Chris Murphy will face off in November for the right to succeed Joe Lieberman in the U.S. Senate.

With 77% of the precincts reporting at 10 p.m., McMahon was soundly defeating former U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays with 76% of the vote. Meanwhile, Murphy cruised by Bysiewicz, the Middletown native and former Secretary of the State, by a comfortable 66% to 34% margin.

In the Fifth Congressional District, Elizabeth Esty emerged on the Democratic side with a convincing 43% to 34% margin (as of 10 p.m.) over the embattled Chris Donovan, once considered the strong frontrunner before a campaign-finance scandal involving several members of his staff, and dark-horse Dan Roberti (23%).

Republicans in the Fifth District went down to the wire, with favorite Andrew Roraback pulling it out with 34% of the vote, followed by Mark Greenberg (28%), Lisa Wilson-Foley (19%) and Justin Bernier (19%) as of 10 p.m.

In the Second Congressional District, East Lyme restaurateur Paul Formica was running away with the Republican primary over Madison’s Daria Novak by about a 2-to-1 ratio, as of 9 p.m. and was declared the winner.

"In the Second Congressional District, East Lyme restaurateur Paul Formica was running away with the Republican primary over Madison’s Daria Novak by about a 2-to-1 ratio, as of 9 p.m. and was declared the winner." "Representative in Congress: Paul Formica had 215 votes Daria Novak won with 236 votes" Am I reading this wrong?

Lucille - The Formica 215 votes to Novak 236 votes was for the town of Clinton only. Here's the link to Formica's win over Novak with the 2nd district results: http://patch.com/A-wWy0

I would be proud to own any business with a person of Daria Novaks stature and business experience . And happy to clean your gutter given my first oportunity .

Any further absentee ballot administration errors will be handled by the Secretary of the State , Election Enforcement Division . There is no need for legal action by the CTA . The CTA has enough to do in trying to keep Clinton from financial self destruction .
